Hi all, after I showered my ds this morning I was thinking how we never have to use hydrocortisone cream anymore & just e45 now & again. Could the improvement in skin be a sign cmp & egg allergy getting better or is this just wishful thinking? He's 3.

well in our case I am afraid it was merely a reflection of the fact we had had the allergies diagnosed and were therefore managing to avoid the allergens ....

hopefully in your case it may be good news!

Thanks babybarrister, deep down i thought that was the reason. At least it means we are doing a good job at keeping ds away from cmp & egg.

Exactly same as BB and thats also what we were told by our consultant, when you start needing less steroids then you know the allergies are under control.
